duration1h39 / 1h48


Sun-jae, an eye-doctor-turned-housewife, finds her cold, inattentive husband cheating on her. Abandoning her affluent suburban life, she moves into a decrepit studio apartment with her six-year-old daughter Tae-soo. Preparing to resume her medical career, Sun-jae is befriended by an interior designer, In-cheol.

Her life, however, plunges into an abyss of paranoia and nightmare after she picks up a pair of pink shoes lying about inside a subway car. Not only have this pair of shoes apparently performed wholly unnecessary amputation surgeries on the select individuals foolish enough to wear them, they also become objects of unhealthy obsession for the ballet-dancing tyke Tae-soo and Sun-jae's dearest friend. Soon mother and daughter behave weirdly about the possession of the high-heeled monstrosity and her friend tragically dies of the shoe-theft. After a series of strange events have taken place, Sun-jae starts to doubt about the curse of the shoes. In order to protect her daughter and herself, she decides to find out the truth behind the Red Shoes.
